How we work
We can help you with specific questions or help you on your journey from idea to profitable, differentiated business, delivering products and services to domestic and international markets.
We help you to work out what advice you really need and when so you can achieve your goals and manage your budget.
We will work with you to develop and implement your export strategy as your outsourced export department, and help you to build and support the commitment you need to succeed.
We will work with your other advisors or introduce you to our partners, and make sure everyone is working effectively towards a common goal. Your team may range from strategists, marketing consultants, contract manufacturers, accountants, government program advisers, grant writers, to freight forwarders, insurers, bankers and so on.
As you commercialise your idea, determine your market, develop and validate your strategy, find customers, suppliers and trading partners,
Fortrade Lawyers advises you about your business structure to support your early strategic plan and risk profile; your owners’ agreement to help you as business owners to align your goals, sort out how certain types of decisions should be made, and provide procedures for exiting your investment; basic Intellectual Property protection such as registration of trade marks; and regulatory advice – so you can determine the right market and market entry strategy.
As you innovate, find new markets, develop and validate your strategy, find new customers, suppliers and trading partners,
Fortrade Lawyers reviews your supply chain to reduce cost, maximise sales and profits; advises you how to leverage and protect your Intellectual Property; revises your structure to support your growth; provides agreements to support new business relationships; and provides regulatory advice to help you to assess new markets and the right market entry strategy.
As you grow organically and via business acquisition, raise capital, sell parts of your business, or start succession planning,
Fortrade Lawyers advises on acquiring, separating or selling business units or IP; planning, negotiating and documenting succession plans; better documenting arrangements to shore up value and value streams.
